Study sunsets until you figure them out, or…
Have you compared your sunsets painted en plein air (outside) to those of top artists like Carl Bretzke? Yes, it’s probably an unfair comparison, and here’s why…
Carl has literally studied sunsets. He has spent a major portion of his 20-year professional landscape-painting career studying how the light works at this time each day. He studied it as a doctor would study a patient … because he spent the first 30 years of his working life as a doctor.
You could invest that kind of time and money too. You could study the atmospheric conditions and the prismatic behavior of sunlight at sunset. Or you could dramatically speed up your learning curve and get Sunset Secrets by Carl Bretzke.
You’ll be delighted when you find that Carl has created a tiered process to help you consistently improve the quality of your sunset paintings. These 7 steps to flawlessly capture the brilliant colors of the setting sun will lead you to success much faster than you ever thought possible.
A sunset doesn’t last…
Time ticks by and those brilliant, rich, and saturated colors disappear. Sometimes it seems they stick around for only a minute. You look away and look back, and the sky is different. This makes it VERY challenging to get it just right.
Bretzke’s Sunset SEQUENCE
This is why, after years of struggle, Carl Bretzke figured out a better way. He studied what happens. He studied the hyper-efficient use of focus during these critical 30 minutes (yes, that’s about all the time you have to get these colors down).
There are ONLY seven parts to this magic sequence. If THIS is the only part of his outstanding new video, Sunset Secrets, you truly learn, it will pay off for you big time! And I mean literally pay off, as more and more people will begin to notice you. It could mean that you’ll be able to sell more paintings at higher prices. People will find they can’t look away from your work.
It starts with a ground plane silhouette
Carl starts out knowing where the ground plane is and blocks that in before the sunset colors show themselves. He fully reviews all elements. This is a critical preparation step.
The Sunset Sequence is MIND-BLOWING
No matter if you are a beginner or a very experienced landscape painter, you will DEFINITELY get HUGE benefit from learning, absorbing, and using Carl’s Sunset Sequence.
